About Us

You – A time deficient business owner who knows they need either a new modern website, introduction film, professionally filmed customer testimonials, updated photography or content for social media but simply do not have the time to commission them. Perhaps you do not fully understand how to generate interaction on social media or utilise each platform effectively.

Us – Experts in films, photography (David shot the Olympic Games in Rio), social media, content creation and website design. We exist to work alongside you to ease the burden and develop your online marketing and sales. We are often more effective and less expensive than you attempting to undertake it in-house.

So often we come across companies who delegate social media to a junior member of staff who “knows” all about Social Media. The majority of the time that person simply knows how to post and create a few #’s. They do not understand the intricacies of each platform and you wonder why it is not effective. That is where we come in. We cannot do what you do and vice versa. So lets work together beneficially.

David

David spent 3 years at catering college before joining the team at Reads Restaurant in Faversham that attained a Michelin Star (one of of 45 in the UK at the time). Working as a Head Waiter and Sommelier David was with the business for a number of years before leaving to set up his own fine wine merchants.

Specialising in high end Australian wines (with a splattering of others) David was exporting to over 15 countries and a page on him in the FT by Jancis Robinson led to a book commission.

Having wound things down for health reasons (he was 6 stone overweight) David set up as a photographer seeing huge success working globally. The highlight being one of the only UK freelancers to be granted full accreditation for the Rio Olympic Games.

David races Ironman Triathlon and marathons in his spare time and enjoys his classic car and collecting watches.

Derek

Derek Boyes is a multi-talented filmmaker who graduated from the National Film and Television School with his spellbinding short, The Happiness Thief. The film premiered in competition at Cannes that same year and went on to play at film festivals across the globe. Derek has since directed shorts for Screen South, the Bfi and the BBC while developing a slate of imaginative feature film projects. His first screenplay Blackout, a gritty micro-budget thriller, was optioned by Ipso Facto Films after it beat over 200 feature projects to the final of The Big Pitch scheme in 2008.

Derek brings his enviable skills to Different Perspective, consulting on the storyboard, shooting and editing.
